staff at the white house, and i think many of you know, especially if you are in the regular press corps, i really enjoyed it. i found the briefing interactions and even the contentious ones to be stimulating and at times frustrating but in a way that i would not trade. there are things about the briefing, obviously, that could be improved. overall, i think it's been a great thing for me. i've done the best i could do serve both the president, the white house, the administration, the country, and also to be as informative as i could be about what the president, the white house, the administration, and the government are doing.
